Saffron is the stigma "painstakingly picked by hand" from a Crocus flower 
grown only in certain parts of the world.  Mine is from Spain and is little 
reddish/orange threads.  It is called "Coupe Grade" and is wonderful to make 
all sorts of goodies.  I wonder if perhaps the bottle in question was 
mis-labeled and that it is actually Nutmeg. Besides freshly ground Nutmeg is 
the way to go.


Besse spat alls nie.
